BSP 67: Thomas Metzinger explores Consciousness

Brain Science Podcast 67 is an interview with German philosopher Thomas Metzinger, author of The Ego Tunnel: The Science of the Mind and the Myth of the Self and Being No One. Dr. Metzinger argues that any credible model for how the brain generates the mind must incorporate unusual human experiences, such as so-called out of body experiences (OBE), and psychiatric conditions. In this interview we explore how OBE and virtual reality experiments shed light on how the brain generates the sense of self that characterizes normal human experience.

BSP 66: Randy Gallistel on Memory and Computation

Episode 66 of the Brain Science Podcast is an interview with Randy Gallistel, PhD, co-author (with Adam Philip King) of "Memory and the Computational Brain: Why Cognitive Science will Transform Neuroscience." We discuss why read/write memory is an essential element of computation with an emphasis on the animal experiments that support the claim that brains must possess read/write memory. This is significant because current models, such as neural nets, DO NOT incorporate read/write memory in their assumptions about how brains work. It is not necessary to have any background in information theory or computation to appreciate the experiments that are discussed in this episode.

Extra: Books and Ideas #34: Bruce Hood

Extra Content: Episode 34 of Books and Ideas is an interview with Bruce Hood, author of "SuperSense: Why We Believe in the Unbelievable." Dr. Hood is a developmental psychologist with a long-standing interest in why people believe weird things. In "Supersense" he argues that innate cognitive structures (how we think without being taught) give people a natural tendency toward belief in the supernatural. Our intuitive sense of how the world works is often at odds with the findings of modern science. In this interview we discuss the evidence for these conclusions and their implications.

In this episode I interview Dr. Paul Offit, author of "Autism's False Prophets: Bad Science, Risky Medicine, and the Search for a Cure." Despite overwhelming scientific evidence against a relationship between vaccines and autism, vaccine opponents continue to frighten and confuse parents. Meanwhile we are beginning to see the re-emergence of preventable and potentially life-threatening diseases among the increasing numbers of unvaccinated children.Dr. Offit's book provides a thorough discussion of the science and politics of the controversy.

Episode 53 of the Brain Science Podcast is a discussion of the book "Did My Neurons Make Me Do It?: Philosophical and Neurobiological Perspectives on Moral Responsibility and Free Will" by Nancey Murphy and Warren S. Brown. They argue convincingly against those who conclude that neuroscience is uncovering a view of the human mind that reveals that free will is an illusion created by our brains. This is a very important topic that should interest everyone who wonders how their intuitive sense of themselves as a free agent can be harmonized with a naturalistic explanation of the human mind.Detailed show notes, references, and an episode transcript are available at http://brainsciencepodcast.com/.Send email to docartemis at gmail.com or share in the Discussion Forum at http://brainscienceforum.com/.This podcast is supported by listener donations.

Are we smart because are brains are large or because our brains are different? In this interview you will learn why Dr. Lynch believes that the unique features of the human brain are a natural result of the size of our brain.

We also look at how research on memory, vision and the brain's attention system suggests how we can improve our ability to learn and our ability to share ideas with others.Dr. Medina's focus is on considering real world examples of how our schools and work environments could be reformed to utilize the growing knowledge of neuroscience. But he also stresses the importance of compiling sufficient experimental data before embarking on new programs.For show notes and links go to http://brainsciencepodcast.com/.Visit the Discussion Forum at http://brainscienceforum.com/.Send email to docartemis at gmail.com.Brain Rules is available from Audible.com.

BSP-36: Embodied Intelligence with Art Glenberg

Episode 36 of the Brain Science Podcast is an interview with Art Glenberg from the University of Wisconsin's Laboratory for Embodied Cognition. Embodied Cognition is the hypothesis that our higher cognitive abilities such as language, are rooted in the perceptual and motor abilities of our bodies. Dr. Glenberg's work focuses on the evidence for this with respect to language understanding. In this interview he also shares how these ideas are being used to help children learn to read. The emphasis of this interview is on the experimental evidence in favor of embodied cognition.This episode is a follow-up to Episode 35, which was about mirror neurons, but new listeners can enjoy this episode without listening to any previous episodes.For links and show notes go to http://brainsciencepodcast.com/.Send email to docartemis at gmail.com or join the Discussion Forum at http://brainscienceforum.com/.

PHIL.The basic premise of this book is that emotions are intimately related to the development of language and intelligence. The authors propose that through interaction with their caregivers humans and non-human primates learn emotional signaling and that as this signaling becomes more complex the brain is prepared for the emergence of symbols and language.In this podcast we discuss some of the evidence supporting their hypothesis, as well as the implications of this theory to theories of language development and human evolution, especially the evolution of language and intelligence.For more information go to my website at http://brainsciencepodcast.com or send your comments to gincampbell at mac dot com.This podcast is released under a Creative Commons 2.5 attribution, no derivatives license.Click here to subscribe in iTunes
